It is I think the best restaurant for italian food in Cali, pizzas are good and the pasta as well, service can be erratic, depending on the time of arrival....but I can recommend the place for a nice dinner with good company.

I love Italian food and Salerno offers a good variety of Italian dishes. They are well known for their brick-oven freshly baked pizza. The taste reminds me of the old italian pizzerías back in NY.

This is probably Cali's most traditional pizza restaurant with several locations in different parts of the city. Their calzone or "pizza pantalon" is a do not miss. Traditional flavors in a casual setting. Fast, easy, inexpensive and delicious!

my wife and I visit this restaurant twice during our stay in Cali, the thin crust was excellent and then toppings were fresh and tasty. In particular we recommend the thin crust parmigiana pizza which features eggplant and excellent marinara sauce.

If you are a pizza lover you have to visit this place and order the Calzone or "Pantalon", you will not regret it. I've been coming to Cali for quite sometime know and this is always the first restaurant I visit.
